Genetic Analysis of Human Norovirus Strains in Japan in 2016–2017

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5778136
PMID: 29403456
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00001

[…] itutions were mapped on the predicted structure using Chimera v1.10.2 ().Next, we predicted B-cell conformational epitopes in the capsid protein in the structural models by DiscoTope2.0 (), BEPro (), EPCES (), and EPSVR (). We used these tools with cut-offs of -3.7 (DiscoTope2.0), 1.3 (BEPro), and 70 (EPCES, EPSVR). We accepted sites as B-cell conformational epitopes when they were inferred by thr […]


Molecular Evolution of the VP1 Gene in Human Norovirus GII.4 Variants in 1974–2015

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5723339
PMID: 29259596
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2017.02399

[…] 434770, Apeldoorn 2007: GU270580, New Orleans 2009: GU445325, Sydney 2012: JX459908) were predicted using the following four tools: DiscoTope 2.0 (Kringelum et al., ), BEPro (Sweredoski and Baldi, ), EPCES (Liang et al., ), and EPSVR (Liang et al., ). Cut-off values of epitopes were set at −3.7 (DiscoTope 2.0), 1.3 (BEPro), and 70 (EPCES, EPSVR). Consensus sites in all of the four tools and region […]


Longitudinal Surveillance of Porcine Rotavirus B Strains from the USA and Canada and In Silico Identification of Antigenically Important Sites

PMCID: 5750588
PMID: 29207506
DOI: 10.3390/pathogens6040064

[…] (https://swissmodel.expasy.org/) using a crystallized structure of a rhesus RVA strain (PDB 3fmg) as the template to generate protein structures as input for Epitope Prediction by ConsEnsus Scoring (EPCES, http://sysbio.unl.edu/EPCES/index.php) and predict the RVB VP7 antigenic epitopes. EPCES utilizes six aspects to predict the antigenic residues: residue epitope propensity, conservation score, […]


Bioengineering a bacterial pathogen to assemble its own particulate vaccine capable of inducing cellular immunity

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5288705
PMID: 28150705
DOI: 10.1038/srep41607

[…] s based on previous studies that demonstrated protective immunity in animal models (). Antigenic epitopes of AlgE were selected based on its structure using B-cell antigenic epitope prediction method EPCES ().Antigenic epitopes of AlgE, OprF, and OprI were combined as a single fusion antigen (OprI/F-AlgE) and translationally fused to either the N or C terminus of PhaC1Pa and the impact on the prod […]


An Introduction to B Cell Epitope Mapping and In Silico Epitope Prediction

J Immunol Res
PMCID: 5227168
PMID: 28127568
DOI: 10.1155/2016/6760830

[…] thods using binary profile of pattern and physicochemical profile of patterns with better sensitivity and AUC on the same benchmark dataset [].Epitope prediction method, which uses Consensus Scoring (EPCES) combines scores from residue epitope propensity, residue conservation, side-chain energy, contact number, surface planarity, and secondary structure composition. EPCES predicts discontinuous ep […]


Progress and challenges in predicting protein interfaces

Brief Bioinform
PMCID: 4719070
PMID: 25971595
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv027

[…] he vast majority of them do not use any antibody information (e.g. CEP [], DiscoTope [, ], ElliPro [, ], PEPITO [], PEPOP [], SEPPA [, ], EPITOPIA [] and others [, ]). Consensus-based methods such as EPCES [] or the meta-server EPSVR/EpMETA [] are currently among the best-performing algorithms in this area []. […]
